Friday Night Flicks: Keith Newstead and Paul Spooner

I only discovered the work of Keith Newstead after getting high speed internet, but I have known about Paul Spooner since the late 1980s, when my brother-in-law gave me a book by Spooner called The Zoo of Tranquility. It contained build-it-yourself paper automata, and I loved it.




Perhaps you can build your own automaton this weekend, following the instructions in this video.


About Byopia Press

I have been working in the book arts field for more than thirty years, and operating Byopia Press with my husband David since the late 1990s. I began producing artist's books and altered books in 2004. I also create prints and drawings that are frequently text-inspired or text-based.
